The WMO (World Meteorological Organization) Rolling Review of Requirements process has documented the user requirements for observations for all applications within WMO programmes and has developed Statements of Guidance (SoGs) on the extent to which these requirements are or will be met by present, planned and proposed observing systems. This paper describes the observational user requirements for operational numerical weather prediction (NWP) and presents those elements of the SoGs relevant to ocean observation. It also summarises relevant sections of the new WMO Vision for the Global Observing System (GOS) in 2025 and the Implementation Plan for the Evolution of the GOS.
